You don't understand my views, or what it is I see
Nothing you say is news cause you wouldn't listen to me
You take my words out of context, your message of wrong is right
What are you gonna tell us next, that dark is day not light?

Creation! is proof enough for me
Something that's there for everyone to see

You watch the wrong example then conclude a falacy
Your hasty generalization is there for all to see
My actions you speak of is easier said than done
The hope that God see's in you has got you on the run.

    this is about how people look for concrete proof of God's existence, but everything that surrounds us is proof of His existence. sorry, i hope i don't sound too preachy but this is my view on it:

    "You watch the wrong example then conclude a falacy"-this is talking about how people look at the small-minded hypocritical Christians and assume that they are all fakes and get the wrong idea about what a Christian shoud be.

    "My actions you speak of is easier said than done"-this is talking about how its easier to say that u are a christian but its hard to actually be one. people think that christians are supposed to be perfect examples but that is impossible.

    "You take my words out of context, your message of wrong is right"-so many people twist the bible around and make it appear closed-minded and wrong. in the movie where the heart is, a girl has a child out of wedlock. a group of people claiming to be christians sends her a hate letter saying that the baby is an abomination. this is a twisted image of christian values that some people send out to others. sorry that was the only example i could think of.

    i would. evolution is crap. its got so many flaws its a joke. God created the universe and anyone who says otherwise is sadly mistaken. MxPx obviously are creationists. "Creation! is Proof Enough for Me!" God didn't need Evolution to create the universe; He's God, Duh!

    I'm sorry, but could you explain to me how flaws in the evolution theory outnumber flaws in creationism?

    Yeah oidimed, evolution is crap, it's all a lie that was invinted just to escape God.

    This song is just MxPx explaning in the most simple way so that even those idiots who do believe in evolution will understand that thay themselves don't believe that fake crap. Don't try to turn this around it's so plan and simple.

    They are stating what they believe in, and in noway are they saying that they believe in evolution. They are saying that just look around us and see that this couldn't be an accident that someone had to create all we see.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
